Warren Buffett Recommends these Books Right Now

Every year Warren Buffett recommends books that are packed with investing wisdom and are valuable for investors, who follow the value investing school of thought. The booklist is published in relation to the Berkshire Hathaway Annual Meeting for Shareholders (Berkshire is Warren Buffett’s company) and he and his business partner, Charlie Munger, has been recommending books for many years. Investors flock to the booth of local bookstore "The Bookworm" at the meeting venue to buy copies from this list. Only books approved by Berkshire Hathaway are sold at the annual meeting. The 2022 list just got revealed since the annual meeting is coming up on April 30th.

I’m particularly excited to see my value investor friend Adam Mead’s book on the list – a big congratulations from me on this incredible milestone and I’m looking forward to getting a signed copy of the book.
